the devil and his “game”
Almost every therapist I know realizes that there is evil out there…
And I believe that they realize that this evil is attacking people’s lives and relationships.
I want to talk about a few subjects that most therapists won’t talk about
I want to reveal to you a simple list of areas where the devil is most likely to attack your life or marriage.
When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see? Do you see a powerful man or woman of God looking back at you?
Do you see a person capable of doing mighty things for God? Do you simply see an ordinary person who works a 9 to 5?
The 1st thing the devil will try to do is to change your self-image.
You have the ability to achieve you are dreams and even beyond…
But do you see yourself actually achieving those dreams?
The devil will also try to attack your self-esteem.
Self-esteem means everything to a human being.
You will never be able to move beyond yourself esteem, you will never be able to move beyond what you think you can do.
The devil well try to convince you that you are not as smart as other people. He may try to convince you that you are not as pretty or handsome as other people.
God maybe trying to get a billion dollar idea into your mind… But if you think you are too stupid to accomplish such a goal then it will never happen.
One of the primary areas that the devil will always attack is relationships.
Go back to Genesis chapter one and you will see that the devil attacked Adam-and-Eve… You separated them, he took their oneness away from them and so he was able to defeat them.
Praise God that Jesus took it all back and gave that back to us… But the devil is still trying to take oneness away from couples.
It would take a rather large volume of books to describe the waves that he tries to accomplish this…
There are instructions in the New Testament that will help you gain your oneness back.
A healthy person is a happy person… A person who is physically or emotionally sec is not a joyful happy productive person.
The general attitude seems to be ” Well… Everybody gets sick occasionally”
When Jesus died on the cross and got beat 39 times with a cat of 9 tails whip… He had other plans for humanity.
It is God’s desire for us to be whole and happy but the devil will do everything in his power to convince you otherwise.
So…what’s my point?
My point is this… So often when a couple comes in to my office for marriage they are pointing the finger at each other.
What if it’s not the husband’s fault? What if it’s not the wife’s fault? What if it is and even the children’s fault?
Where does the blame go?
Let’s look at a few scriptures that deal with this and I will show you what I mean.
John 10:10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy.
I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
Your mate or family may seem like they are out to destroy you…but it’s really the devil who does this.
Put the blame where it belongs!
Look at Ephesians 6:12 “For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—
the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world;
and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.” (the Living Bible)
Did you get this? “we are not fighting against people of flesh and blood“
Placing the blame where it belongs is a great start.
Take the pressure off of those who seem to be attacking you and see what happens.
